Bellevue, Idaho

Built on vision, hard work, resourcefulness and family

Mayor and City Council

Christopher (Chris) Koch
Term: January 2017 - January 2019
I grew up in a small town in New Hampshire. After high school, I attended New York Institute of Technology and earned a degree in architecture. In 1992 I moved back to New Hampshire & went to Keene State College to explore a teaching degree. In 1994 I packed up everything I owned into my car and moved to Ketchum, Idaho on a whim.  In 2001 I moved to Bellevue and starting giving back more than ever. I immediately got involved with the City, after a few years I became the Mayor. Being the Mayor of Bellevue allows me to have many connections within the valley. These connections help my students give back to the community and show empathy to not only local but global projects. I believe giving back to others and living outside your comfort zone is the only way to live a fulfilling life.

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others"

I moved to Blaine County from Twin Cities in 1989 and never left. I moved to Bellevue in 2003. We opened Mahoney's in 2005 and are finishing up our 12th year. I love living and working in Bellevue.
